We had a really nice meal here - much better than the run of the mill Thai experience. Food was really tasty, service was good, and we sat on high stools on the deck, which was a great place to enjoy the warm evenign and watch the passers-by.

Stopped in for dinner on a Sunday night, was a bit of a wait for the food but was super tasty and staff were lovely. Kind of pricey too considering the amount you get but nonetheless would go again.

Such complex and fresh flavours, all of our dishes were delicious. It's not your traditional Thai, its a beautiful Thai food experience!

The food was excellent. Not your standard Thai selection. Great international staff. A Canadian girl from Edmonton and a French bloke gave us attentive service. BYO and value for money.

We have eaten a lot of Thai, I am not sure whether this was "traditional" Thai, but don't care as it was delicious. Entrees were spicy and interesting (scallops and betel nut salad) and our mains were full of flavoursome tender meat. Service was excellent and we particularly appreciate the kind attention shown to our young daughter. Definitely a place... More

Very overpriced and marginal food. The tom yam was okay. The papaya salad was wretched--pretty much just doused in sour lime juice. I'd be more generous, but didn't like the salesmanship. As the waiter was bringing the free bottle of table water, he said, "Or would you prefer sparkling"? Without thinking about it, one of us said "yes". He came... More

The restaurant was nicely decorated and cosy. Food was nice but I'd rather call it Thai fusion. Nothing we ordered looked or tasted authentic Thai. The staff don't know much about Thai food culture. A bit overpriced.
